MOBERLY AREA COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOUNDATION, INC. is pleased to announce the endowment of a new scholarship, to honor the memory of Michael Dehn Breault by his spouse, Gordon H. Hoppe. The endowed fund of $25,000 will be invested per the Foundation’s investment strategy, and scholarships will be paid from the interest of the fund of approximately $1000 per year.
Michael Dehn Breault founded Gibson & Dehn, a Home Fragrance business, which had design and operations in New York City and Clarksville, Missouri. It became Michael’s personal mission to “do good while doing business” which he did by bringing meaningful, creative, and sustainable jobs to Clarksville, MO. By opening both a candle pouring and vegan leather factory in historic Clarksville and working with large corporate clients he helped not only connect rural and metropolitan areas but also provide fair wages and benefits to his employees. With this scholarship, his family hopes to help fund the education of students interested in design and/or business who would like to work and remain in their community.
The Moberly Area Community College Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) exists to advance, assist, and support MACC to enrich and enhance learning opportunities for students of Moberly Area Community College and the communities which it serves.
